Happy 13th Birthday Johnny

I can’t believe MY BABY is 13!! When did he go and grow up? I swear one day I blinked and he went from being a sweet lil’ baby to this amazing kid. I call him my big boy now. He says he’s a young man. I refuse to admit it. I just cannot use the word MAN when talking about MY BABY.

Sadly, we lost almost all his photos from under age 5 when our home burned down but I was able to find this one (and a few others). Looks a bit like Sawyer, huh?


Here he is at age 4 when my Dad, Stepmother,  & I brought him to FL. It was his first time to Disney and he loved it.


He loved being a brother right from the start. It’s funny to look back at the days when he buzzed all his hair off.


He was around 7 when I started blogging. If you’re here from the start you might remember this photo.


Here are some of my favorites of him in the past few years.

    I love visiting my fellow western Mass blogger. Look at those beautiful photos! You sure know your way around a camera. He’s a beautiful boy (not man yet). All three are, and yes, he did look like Sawyer!
    Have a beautiful day.

  2. Happy Birthday to him! Such great photos. I know you lost some photos, but it’s great you have these.

    I had to giggle because I have said them same thing with my four girls and one son, where does the time go, they just grow up so fast and they forgot to ask if they could—He is a handsome young man, and Happy belated birthday. Photos and memories are so awesome to have to take you back to those special moments in our lives,since they all seem to grow up so dang fast. Thank you for sharing with us all your private loving moments <3

  6. Happy belated birthday to your son! Seems like a good kid who loves his brothers. I cried like a baby when “my baby” turned 13 years old.
